Remembering Tim O'Brien
It is with deep sadness to inform you of the passing of Timothy O’Brien (Loyola Academy Class of '84) on Sunday, January 13th.
We invite the entire LAHC community to join the current players, coaches, administrators and board members in heartfelt prayer for the O’Brien and Meccia families during this difficult time. Tim will be remembered and held dear by his loving family Aimee (Meccia), and their four children Devin (’15), Abigail (’17), Eamon (’19) and Ciaran (’22). All four children are part of the Loyola Hockey Club family, with Eamon and Ciaran participating in the 2018-2019 season.
Tim also will be remembered for his unbridled enthusiasm, his quick wit, and his well earned reputation for being the number one fan of Loyola’s hockey program. Beyond attending games, Tim was an ardent supporter of our annual O’Grady Thanksgiving Tournament as well as our alumni events. He will be sorely missed by our community.
